Ca’ Rozzeria Barolo, 2010

Who’s opened the 2010 so early? Shurely shome mishtake? Alas, this is not an honorable mention in the Barolo Hall of Fame.

Ca’ Rozzia Barolo. 2010

If you equate rich, tannic, heaviness with Nebbiolo, this will sorely disappoint. If you are just wine curious, this is hugely satisfying. Overtly fruity. Assertively fruity. Think Rip Taylor tossing confetti with his wig just a tad askew. Intensely light and cherry slash currant slash pomegranate fruity. For the life of me I couldn’t place the varietal blind. With four hours air after decanting this was like a New World Pinot Noir. Delicious, yes. Barolo, classic Barolo? No. It was not wrong to open.

 

Price: A thrifty $19.99 USD before the CAD tanked.

 

Market Liquidity: When terroir is a bit of a tease.
